Portland's winter farmers' market started yesterday, with lines of people eagerly awaiting their local eats. This market is based on email orders, which are delivered every other week. Bath does a more traditional market through the winter, and I hear other towns are getting into the winter farmers' market act. Here's what I know about these two markets (from http://themaineswitch.com/story/view/2201/
). What's going on in your area?
